I recently went to this Vidal Sassoon at South Coast Plaza and had my hair done there by the colorist Marsha, who did a great job repairing my hair color from another stylist at another salon. The other stylist had done some uneven thick and thin highlights in a very unattractive way, as I had done it in the first place to match the top and bottom more-my haircolor at the very ends were lighter from dye eventually wearing off—the ends had just got too light.
She recommended an all over tint- a kind of semi-permanent toner to blend all of the blondes in a natural way. (plus more options than I have ever been given!). Since the ends were dry and and faded they would not be good for an amonia hair dye but a tint absorbed well. It was similar to dying but better for it and my hair came out very shiny. It has been 10 days now as predicted some of the tint lightens a bit but its all evenly shaded together and the uneven highlights and light ends dimmed out.
For an expensive salon the tint was $90—my hair is long also--(the bad hightlights at the previous lower priced salon were $115 –not very low priced) The total price at Vid Sas. was $140 because the blowdry was $50 as I will skip that part next time but I will definitely go back there—The color part was definitely worth it and I would have paid more to fix my hair than that! Thanks again to Marsha the colorist who I can speak for, and I am sure there are other good ones there, I will repeat for sure.
